with a 4-3 victory in game 4. ken rosenthal standing by with tigers' manager jim leyland. >> ken: jim, you had such a great run to get here. you beat the a's, you swept the yankees. what happened in this series? >> it was freaky. i would never guess we would have swept the yankees and i never would have guessed the giants would sweep us. i want to start by congratulations the giants. there's nothing fluky but it. about it goes sevengation, maybe it's a fluke but they swept us. they were the better team. they beat us four straight. you have nothing to complain about. we didn't hit enough, we didn't score runs. >> ken: obviously coming into the series you are thinking about a lot of things. you are down 3-0 coming into tonight. did you think if you got this win, with verlander going tomorrow, you had a chance to get back in? >> i sure did. you know, you can only take it one at a time. but i felt good coming into this series about our pitching staff and they were terrific. you know, scherzer did a great job. wasn't quite as strong sometimes with his velocity but he did a great job. i felt rea
low ma particular now. >> still to come on 49er preview, we sit down with jim harbaugh. next. ,,,,,,,,,,,, for kickoff...another primee game for jim harbaugh...i ct up w he prepares fo . >>> counting down to kickoff, another prime time came for jim harbaugh. i caught up with the coach as he prepares for his first of two monday night games this season. >> i saw a number today that was interesting, that the nfc west teams, all four in the nfc west are all within the top ten defensively and it is a very physical game against seattle. do you see this division as a much more physical division, defensively, than it was last year? >> well, it was pretty darn physical last year, i have to say. it was physical out there the other night, our game with seattle. i thought it was a great game, great football game. whether you are talking college football or pro football, one of the best games that i had a chance to witness in the last decade. both teams played their guts out. these guys got out to a 4-0 start. and skelton, they only had 11 points in there. he did do damage against the 49e
of technical assistance to the task force. so, let me introduce peter cohen. >> thank you. thank you, jim. good afternoon, commissioners. i'm here in a whole different capacity. so, i'm enjoying this, and thank you for asking me, jim and others from the task force. i've been involved in many area plan processes in san francisco in many different roles and this was a particularly unique role for us because at the time my day job, how i actually help to pay the rent, we had a community planning program which -- in neighborhood asian design provide technical support and processes for research work in many parts of the city. western soma folks came to us and said, can you really provide kind of our main staffing to augment what paul lord at the planning department was able to do? and we had a small technical team and we thought this was great. so, we were essentially consultants to a planning process which put us in this very official role. but really because of the nature of the process, we were co-thinkers. it was a very different role and relationship than consultants typically have in planning.
to introduce jim meeko, the chair of the western soma citizens task force. >> thank you very much, and thank you, president fong and commissioners. it's such a pleasure to finally be here at the tail end of this process. i'm glad corey mentioned the bulk of our work was really done between 2005 and 2008, but that's not to imply that we haven't been doing important things since then. but i'll leave it to corey to explain to you why it's taken this long to finally come before you for this final stage of the process. it would be disingenuous to imply this process was not without controversy. in 2004, when this commission recommended that western soma be removed from the eastern neighborhoods process, and when they supported the resolution at the board of supervisors to create the task force, this is not planning being done in the city. in general, planning was a top down process where predetermined outcomes were generally packaged into powerpoint presentations and a very perfunctory community process would lead to a quick adoption. south of market and western soma, which is kind of an invention
. and i just want to say a special thank you to peter daly and jim malony, they worked very hard, they were very professional. but as i said, when we sat down across the table and had breakfast, the guy was just like, wow, i'm just relieved to know that labor, port are working together and we're looking into the future. we want to go out together. and one of my commitments as a commissioner is to go on these trips and to take labor and go with the port. and we want to bring more working class jobs, what the community really needs is jobs. they're not doing a good job in d.c. getting jobs. we want to do it here in the port of san francisco. and i want to thank the support of my commissioners here, president doreen, kim, and leslie, because we're committed. in the future i would just like to say before i'd like to have mike come up and say a word, i think we need more presentations on maritime and our clients. i think it's important. i think we need to be abreast. and we know this is a port with a lot of diversity in it from stadiums to maritime, to exploratorium. we all can coexis
against affeldt. strike 1. he ties up dirks. >> tim: this is why jim leyland loves dirks hitting against left-handed pitching because he's short to the ball. he often hits the ball to left field against left-handers. hit .274 against them in the regular season. >> joe: casilla still up in the bullpen. two strikes with peralta, the right-handed hitter, on deck. so a battle of the bullpens. that's what we have gotten to here in game four. avila struck out the side in the eighth. phil coke struck out the side in the ninth. the 0-2. breaking ball stays up. ball 1. dirks now in battle mode with two strikes. we've seen affeldt talk to himself a lot while he's out there pitching. >> tim: a lot of hitters do that too when he's pitching. this guy is tough on left-handers. fastball in tight, sweeping breaking ball away. >> joe: the 1-2. scooped up by posey. 2-2. bochy and righetti have a decision to make after dirks, once he ends the night. he hit eight home runs during the regular season. and he strikes out. that is four straight for affeldt! can't do it any better than jeremy affeldt. one out hi

many of our residents who have been involved in the process, in particular jim mico who has chaired that process over the last seven years for his tenacious commitment to this plan. it is a model process where community voices were combined with technical resources from planning staff and outside consultants to yield land use, zoning and design solutions based on community knowledge as well as empirical data and mapping. while there are still areas of the plan that need further discussion and refinement, as a whole we feel that the community plan is thoughtful, comprehensive, forward looking and is worthy of your support. two areas that our office is continued to working with the planning department on and community stakeholders is of course the issue of 11th street which i know that the commission has heard a lot about with our entertainment stakeholders and that is something that we continue to find alternative solutions to and that hopefully we will come to some kind of middle ground regarding that. the other is of course the overlap with the central corridor plan which will be c
the core principles that are in the plan. thank you. >> thanks, jim, commissioners. as jim mentioned, it was really a conglomerate of very different people. i was the only professional on the task force aside from paul lord. and it came with actually a lot of well-developed opinions and a lot of people had a commitment to the original south of market plan. and what was most interesting was that it actually took us almost a year to develop these planning principles, which at first i thought were (bleep), excuse me. i actually think i'm proud to say that they did guide the process and got out a lot of the preconceived notions about the plan. and i do think the plan reflects these principles. can i have the overhead? so, basically the whole input of the plan was to build on what people liked south of market. the legislation itself was about highlighting the alleys, which people loved, as the quintessential south of market. and letting those positive qualities of people feeling they knew their neighbors, they were comfortable with their existence, and not having the more intensity greate
